What are snapshots?

You can take snapshots of your servers at any time to store an image of your server in its current state.

Detail Information
Cost Free
Created You can take snapshots manually at any time
Requirements Your server must be stopped
Maximum number The maximum number of snapshots you can create is determined by the number of snapshot credits available to your account


  • Create "templates" of servers you plan to create frequently with snapshots. For example, after installing a LAMP stack, you can create a snapshot of the server and then easily create servers that already have LAMP installed on them.
  • Create on-the-fly backups before making major changes to your server with snapshots. If something goes wrong, you can restore the server with a snapshot.
